    I wrote a review previously but could not figure out how to edit it. After I wrote that review, one of these poles snapped in half. They fixed it (I had to pay the shipping, what a rip off). Then they were used ONCE this season and one snapped. I don't know if it was the same one that broke or the other one. Again I had to pay to ship it back. At this point it probably cost me as much in shipping as it did to buy them. I was not doing anything abusive with them. The first time I was hiking on talus and the second time my cousin was using them. So yeah, they are light, but they are also unreasonably fragile. So if you need to depend on your poles for any reason, I would pick something else. This is the only time I have ever had a pole break in half (twice) and I have had a lot of poles.

    They are simple to set up, light weight, and strong.

    I love these sticks ! Hiked in the Tetons with them and only problem was slipping of the pole sections on the first day. Be sure to loosen the clip and then tighten the adjustment screw adequately. They are strong and very light, and they have a comfortable grip. For the Sierra price, a great deal.

    Poles arrived quickly and I immediately noticed how light they are. They also setup easily and have markings on them to ensure you get each pole at the same length.

    The only drawback is the locking system. You will need to tighten the screw on the back of each lock to get these tight enough to support your weight on the trail. Once you tighten those the locking tabs become harder to use, but they do stay solid at that point.

    I recently reviewed these poles and raved about how light they are. That much is very true. But the " power lock" mechanisms are junk. They collapsed on me when I stumbled ( putting more pressure on them than usual...but isn't that why you carry hiking poles?). Tightened them with a screwdriver...and the very next hike, they collapsed again! Calling customer service to see what my return options are...
